Former Players’ Association

Ahead of our 125th year the Club is supporting a new initiative to unite those who have worn the shirt and promote friendship, belonging and pastoral support…

It’s with great pleasure that we can announce that Cardiff City Football Club are supporting the launch of a new Former Players' Association.

The FPA has five key purposes, namely:

  1. To unite those male and female players who have worn the shirt and recognise the valued contribution that they have made to the club.
  2. To promote friendship, pastoral support, and practical assistance to members in need.
  3. To recognise and mark special occasions in the club’s history.
  4. To reconnect supporters with club legends from years gone by.
  5. To reacquaint former players with Club community and support schemes, including Cardiff City Foundation and Cardiff City Disabled Supporters’ Association.

Cardiff City FC Executive Director & CEO, Ken Choo, said of the re-launch: “We are delighted to help support this initiative to reconnect our former players with the Club. These legends and icons are part of Cardiff City’s rich history, and their contributions will be forever valued. We want them to feel welcome and that they will always be a huge part of our Club.”

The FPA’s Interim Board will consist of former players Roger Gibbins, David Giles, Lee Jarman, Gary Bell and Damon Searle; Cardiff City Medical Director, Professor Len Nokes; Club Historian and Journalist, Terry Phillips; and will be supported by senior Club executives.  The board are also actively seeking a Women’s Team representative and expressions of interest are welcome.

Each month, former players signed up to free FPA membership will receive a digital newsletter highlighting upcoming fixtures, events and key club news. Further detail will be replicated via the Club’s matchday programme and official communications channels, with FPA fund-raising opportunities also promoted.
